I tried to combine the names, but that needs an admin to okay it before it changes. I think you should still be able to edit the proposed name and add the . there, I’m not sure an admin combining the names would change your proposals either. And I’m fine leaving the name as is without more info, but I do hope there is more info next time you find these. :)

No particular reason.

It was just the name that I first confronted and so I used it in my data base. I am not willing to every week change names ;)
Interesting paper. I have downloaded it and will look when I next find Agrocybe.
It is of no use for this obs. for I didn’t keep it (you could make A. pediades group out of it if you like).
How to change author citation? I tried but it didn’t work.

From what I have found out, A. semiorbicularis was described from small variations in the A. pediades complex and that the morphological distinctions used (Spore size, cap color, veil) are variable and not very useful for species determination. Maybe you can help me understand why you prefer A. semiorbicularis over any of the other names used for this group? :)

And without microscopy, I’m not certain how we can rule out species like A. ochracea (With pleurocystidia) or some of the species with a reduced/absent germ pore?

Here is a good paper on the complex. http://bit.ly/Ym03mJ

Also, if you keep using A. semioribicularis, can you consider adding the missing . after Bull?

No,I think I didn’t.

I know it’s synonymous. Every now and then the name switches between both taxa so I always keep semiorbicularis ;)

A. semiorbicularis is a synonym of A. pediades, I don’t suppose you scoped these? You probably need microscopy to get a good name, the keys in fan6 probably could help.
